My husband made this up after we couldn't find a good enough one! This is delicious as a batter for anything from onions to fish.

The batter itself was ok, although in my opinion it was way too thin. I ended up using 2 1/4 cups flour, just so I could put a little milk in, too. Next time I will put some more spices in (besides a dash salt) for more flavor. But this is a good base recipe, with this you can tinker and create your own "secret" homestyle frying batter.
